, she should have said that to the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice because she judged to conclusions and told us unequivocally what happened. i'm perplexed as to why the media has not gone to susan rice as a follow-up, what were you talking about? because the facts have now proven you to be wrong. where the u.n. press corps. where the state department press corps? >> she does not make herself very available. >> jon: she was very available on sunday morning. >> but then when you try to talk to her at united nations she will come out and make a few statements and then she is gone. >> now, look, when i heard secretary clinton say that, let's get to that after the elections, do us one favor and you can investigation all you want. >> i think at the same time susan rice was making her unequivocal statement about what this was and caused it. we had eli lake writing that within 24 hours there were indications from more than one intelligence source that this had been a preplanned attack involving al-qaeda or some elements thereof. clearly there is a conflicting view of the fact
contradictory public statements by the president, the secretary of state and the u.n. ambassador on libyan terrorist attacks. state department officials telling a house investigative committee that they never told anyone in the obama administration or anyone else for that matter, the terrorist attacks in benghazi were linked in any way whatsoever to an anti-muslim internet video. a video that the president himself over a three-week period of the cause of those attacks. someone in the administration is clearly not telling the truth. the house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa, is not pleased. the president cannot be pleased. the public statements are contravened by both evidence and testimony now before the oversight committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is sense
murdered. when you take a look at what has happened just in the last few weeks, they sent u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at the u.n. he said six times he talked about the youtube video. look, if we're hit by terrorists we're going to call it for what it is-- a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi, a place where we knew that there was an al qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the romney-ryan ticket with making this an issue. with respect to iraq. we had the same position before the withdrawal was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make shiewrp we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiation by president obama and they failed to get agr

, we know they knew it was terrorism within the first day. and yet, the president goes to the u.n. and says video, video, video. >> sean: they said it was spontaneous, lie. they said it was video, lie. the libyan president told us in day 1 and intelligence told them. the state department is saying, we knew it had nothing to do with the video. we knew it wasn't spontaneous. we have a major problem here. let me go back to biden and to this debate, for just a second here. because they have sequestered this guy for over a week now, preparing him, you know, i guess, you know, filling his head full of zingers, as they like to say, one-liners. you know, isn't there weakness? nobody in the media seems to be able to figure this out that they have a four-year record. it's a failed record. no matter what they say that -- congressman ryan gets to say -- why didn't do you that? this is what you did do. this is what we will do differently. it seems like a pretty easy formula. >> well, look, i think you are going to see that very directly. i think congressman ryan is going to bring up the failur
testimony of state department officials. he is doubling down on denial. >> greta: the former u.n. bamboss dor, john bolton is here. >> incompetence, ideology or coverup. but this is looking like the comedy routine of "who's on first"? >> i think vice-president biden really crossed an important line, reinforced today. they have dug a mote around the white house on the one hand and the state department and the intelligence community on the other. basically saying that the buck stopsa the state department, as ed henry asked the spokesman earlier today. if that's the case, one has to ask, what is the national security council staff for, if not to monitor what is going on at the state department to know where the security problems exist? don't forget, ambassadors are the president's personal representatives, obviously, they work for the state department. but the ambassador covers all of our agencies overseas and all presidential appointees. so to say, we didn't know about it is an admission of real failure on the part of the top management of the white house. >> greta: what secretary of state
of what everyone has talked about, what president obama talked-about at the u.n., the cascade of proliferation, the unraveling of the regime. that is what would follow from the saudi opposition of nuclear weapons, because it does not probably stop saudi arabia. there are other countries in the area that will want them as well. preventing that will become a very high priority for united states foreign policy. and by preventing that, i mean preventing the saudis from responding. we do not want to end up there, but think that is where we are the moment it becomes clear that they have nuclear weapons. what we do? one thing we will do, and quite confident is to apply the cold war deterrence model can and try to persuade the saudis that they weapons if anuclear they are the victim of a nuclear attack. i think there's a lot of reason to think that we might not be as persuasive and making that case to the saudi government as we work to the germans and other allies during the cold war. another thing, we will go to the saudis and say, we will keep in place in sanctions regime. you are t

the president even when he went to the u.n. kept going back to the stupid movie trailer nobody believed had any part of this. >> again and again and again, you saw both this coverup and i thinkt's important that they teyi breer offials t t tos st . esi, as saying it was a video, has for the most part been silent on t. have you a coverup of air terrorist attack because it doesn't fit with theirhole notion that somehow al qaeda is on the rope, which the president ntins to. ls kea guheef dtm isaep sg qaeda is ascendant throughout the middle-east. you have also got this question of why they din't have enough security. >> sean: they asked for security and they were denied. thwet lncts rodi uos, h hy t request should have been granted. but the lying and the coverup and the stonewalling is the big issue. let's look a montage of the white house's evoing sry. viceird at american embassies over an all of internet video. >> this is under investigation. the unrest around the region has been in response to thisideo acabelnc dingt ak he mon i benghazi was planned or imminent. >> it began spontaneously in

that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at u.n. six times he talked about the youtube video. >> the intelligence community told us that. as they learned more facts about exactly what happened they changed their assessment. jon: the heat got hotter. things got sparky when they sparked over their plans for medicare. >> their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guarantee of medicare. >> here is the problem. they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning medicare into a piggy bank for obamacare. their own actuary from the administration said one out of six hospital and nursing homes will go out of business as a result of this. 7.4million seniors are projected lose the immediate toda medicare advantage they have. >> more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president, i know -- mr. vice president i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground.

speaks, the ambassador will speak to us. former ambassador to the u.n. and advisor to the romney campaign. so he's going -- i know i read some excerpts. he's delivering the speech right now. we haven't heard what he's actually saying at the moment but in reading some of the excerpts, i know he will be -- he will say the u.s. should be more assertive i guess in the syrian conflict. what should we be doing that we're not doing with regard to syria? >> well i think governor romney points out that the policy that the obama administration has followed the past 18 months has been a failure. the conflict continues. we relied on russia to help us find a way to ease the dictatorship out of power. that was never going to work. as a consequence with russia and iran still supporting assad, we have had this on going battle with probably over 20,000 civilians killed. what governor romney recommends in the speech -- in the speech is that we carefully select leaders in the opposition who we can trust and see if it is possible to support them. connell: but getting involved ourselves is not realistic, is i

for the embassy attack. in a speech at the united nations, two weeks later, he blamed them. >> he went to the u.n. and said six times talked about the youtube video. look, if we hit by terrorists we will call it for what it is: a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment regarding him. shouldn't we have one regarding our ambassador in benghazi? >> there is a marine detachment at embassy in tripoli but not the consulate where ambassador stevens was killed. >>trace: wendell, each side now is accusing the other side of playing politics. >>reporter: republicans say that the administration underestimated al qaeda and tried to cover up the intelligence failure. there were a couple of attacks in benghazi before the 9/11 including at the consulate. the white house says republicans are trying to make the president take 9 blame for something that never rose to his level. >> the attack by in what is more likely a legal attack by republicans, in this case by congressman ryan, was to try to suggest that the president and the white house was responsible for assessing security at a diplo
, flat out ugliness of process in raddatz' question was in paul ryan's answer on the u.n. based diplomacy in iran. >> when barack obama was elected they had enough material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. we've had four different sanctions, three from the bush administration, one here, and the only reason we got it is because russia watered it down. >> it is true the u.n. can be maddeningly dysfunctional. it's an accident of history and that russia's objections to any and all u.s. proposals can seem to americans truculant and spiteful. what exactly is the alternative? the answer is violence, war, death and bloodshed which brings us to the announcement yesterday from the nobel prize committee of a somewhat unusual choice. the european union. the announcement occasioned a whole lot of snark state side. not a good sign if the e.u. asks that its nobel prize be paid in some currency you other than the euro. jeffrey goldberg tweeted, next year the nobel committee should consider awarding the peace prize to puppies. dave wooegle, this guy right here, nobel me. the team at fox an

be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. there is a longing for american leadership in the middle east. it's not unique to that region. it's broadly felt by america's friends and allies in other parts of the world as well. in europe, where putin's russia casts a long shadow over young democracies and where our oldest allies have been told per pivoting away from them. in asia and across the pacific where china's assertiveness is sending chills throughout the region and in our hemisphere where neighbors in latin america want to resist hugo chavez, the castro brothers and deepen ties with the united states on trade, energy and security. but in all of these places just as in the middle east the question is asked, where does america stand. i know many americans are asking, why us? i know many americans are asking whether our country today with our ailing economy and massive debt and after 11 years of war is still capable of leading. i

it was triggered by the youtube video. this despite the fact that u.n. ambassador susan rice repeatedly called it spontaneous. the president's top counterterrorism adviser met with the libyan president today and discussed the effort to track down those responsible for the attack. of course, this is an election year and certainly politics to all this. democrats say they have been completely left out of the oversight investigation. being led by republican chairman issa. mitt romney recently made the attack a focus of criticism of the president on foreign policy. let's put it through the "spin cycle." first context. i think issa would have more credible if he didn't try to make a scandal stick to the president. he was the one that was behind the fast and furious and all male panel on contraception. the idea of him conducting a nonpartisan unbiassed investigation is just ludicrous. second of all, we should point out that republicans actually cut half a billion dollars from embassy security funding and hillary clinton actually said at the time that that could be detrimental to america's national se
played a role in early descriptions of the attack from u.n. ambassador susan rice, the state department, and the white house. >> when you put jay carney out there and ambassador rice to say that this is a result of an inflammatory reaction to a controversial film, sir, it begs the question, what happened was it a result of political pressure? >> i have been a career foreign service officer for 39 years. i have served every president since richard nixon. i have directly served six secretaries of state. >> but the white house still faces questions about that evolving explanation for the benghazi attack. at wednesday's press briefing, press secretary jay carney was hammered with questions. >> why were you at this podium for several days after that saying we don't know if it's terrorism? >> i never said that. i never said we don't know if it's terrorism. there's a definition of terrorism. it's an act of terrorism, the president made clear. >> so september 12th, the president believed it was terrorism? >> he was it was an act of terror. >> the president gave his own defense of that shifting
take a look at what has happened in the last few weeks. they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six times the youtube video. if we are hit by terrorists, we are going to call it. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. should we have the marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi? we knew there was an al qaeda cell. this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they are blaming the romney- ryan ticket. we had the same position before the withdrawal. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice-president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. he failed to get the agreement. that is what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude. including your son. we also want to make sure that we do not lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, we agree with
point was the response to the initial question on libya. >> they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this is because of a protest and youtube video. >> that is exactly what we were told by intelligence community. >> by who? >> the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened. they changed their assessment. >> joe scarborough this morning, as well as in "the daily standard," they said this that biden throws the intelligence community under the bus. what's your thought here? was the vice president not aware of the congressional testimony that happened on tuesday? the full tick tock that had come out? it didn't sync with his answer, necessarily. >> i think there will be more to be said on this today. i'm not going to prejudge what might come out of the state department. let me just say this. what i find disgusting, and american people should find disgusting, on the night this was happening, before we knew the ambassador had been killed, mitt romney decided to politicalize a tragedy in the middle east. >> that is what the vice president said.
